LAWRENCE, Kan. - Kansas men's basketball head coach Bill Self announced Tuesday that guard Brandon Rush has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

"The MRI report from last Friday confirms that Brandon did tear his ACL," Self said. "We did not announce the nature of the injury last week per Brandon's request. Friday was an emotional day for Brandon as he had worked very hard in preparation for the NBA pre-draft camp. By law we cannot comment on an injury without a player's consent."

"Brandon is in good spirits and is presently rehabbing as he prepares for surgery this week or early next week," Self added.

Rush is a two-time All-Big 12 first team honoree and was a John Wooden Award All-America selection and a Naismith Award finalist in 2006-07. He has led the Jayhawks in scoring each of his first two seasons, including 13.8 points per game and was second in rebounding at 5.6 per contest this year. He also hit a team-best 50 three-pointers on the season.
